DJ FALKOR

(BELGIUM)

I started dj-ing around my 18th as a techno-dj and producer in the late nineties, changing over to disco-house in the early nillies. Soon I felt that I was missing something important in the regular club-circuit and went out to search for other minded things, as I found 5-rythms events, where I played regularily for a few years..

 

Since 2013, my style became wider and more mainstream music , to finally find my way into different worldstyles, worldgrooves, gipsy- and balkanbeats, elektroswing, tribal beats, shamanic and native music, mantra's and psychedelic trance. Since 2014 I'm connected with Ecstatic Dance, and these are now my most important events, where I love to take the dancers on a deep, transformational, ecstatic dance-journey.

 

For me, being a dj is now all about guiding people into a transformational journey, in what I'm still learning en growing.
